Mizuno has unveiled a 460cc re-engineered version of its graphite crown MP-001 driver. A new lightweight face material combines the stability of its graphite crown technology with a confidence inspiring 460cc head size. The lightweight K-Self Titanium forged face and 20% thinner graphite crown, allowed weight to be redistributed within the head to let golfers easily square the club head at impact. Combined with a huge effective hitting area and high launch angle created by the MP-001's graphite crown, this ensures drivers are struck straighter and more consistently than ever before. Mizuno Global Director of R&D Masao Nagai commented, 'The new MP-001 combines the consistency of our 400c design with the forgiveness of a massive 460cc head size. Only a year ago we could not have achieved this size as the larger head would have been difficult to square at impact. The centre of gravity would have been too close to the clubface and away from the shaft. The new K-self Titanium allowed us to save enough weight to eliminate the problem. Now we have a massive, easy to use driver that sits beautifully at address and is easy to square at impact.' The MP-001 is an engineering landmark, combining a light graphite crown and titanium body. This gives the high launch angle and low spin rate needed to maximize a players distance and control. The new 460cc model re-distributes head weight again to deliver a maximum size head to perform for both professionals and amateurs. The 460cc's new Forged K-Self Titanium, reduces face weight by 10%, while a 20% thinner graphite crown allows an extra 60cc volume for added confidence. The result is a shallower 460cc head that sits squarely at address, relying on internal weighting to square the face at impact. The 460cc generates a higher launch angle than the 400cc ensuring even greater ease of use and distance.
